Andrea Mandorlini dedicated Verona’s win over local rivals Chievo “to the fans. We really wanted this win.”
Luca Toni secured the 1-0 victory , gaining revenge for Chievo’s identical result earlier this season.
“We really wanted this win, but started off far too tense and Chievo played better in the first half,” the Coach told Sky Sport Italia.
“It was a game we cared about a great deal for our fans and the dedication goes to them.
“I feared we’d concede an equaliser at the end, as we had missed a couple of decisive scoring opportunities.
“Now we have to take it one game at a time, because as soon as we started to think about Europe, the results stopped coming.
“We’ll focus on Fiorentina and promise to fight until the end.”
